    • ​Cross-Over Voting: The American Independent, Democratic, and Libertarian parties are allowing voters who have not chosen a party preference with a qualified political party to request and vote on their Presidential candidates at the March 3, 2020 Presidential Primary Election. You may not request more than one party's ballot.
    • All ballots contain the names of candidates for voter-nominated and nonpartisan offices, as well as state and local measures to be voted upon. If you have indicated a party preference with one of the qualified political parties, you may only vote the presidential primary election ballot of that party.
